The program started by an invocation led by Rizzy Mae Navarro followed by the singing of the National Anthem, then an opening remark by the Writing and Language Club President, Keith O. Ulangkaya.

The celebration includes many activities related to Filipi- no like, sabayang pagbigkas, sayawitan, awit ng tangha- lan, paggawa ng sanaysay, poster making and slogan. These activities aims to heighten the country’s reception of Filipino as an intellectualized language and will hold together teachers, linguists, researchers and various or- ganizations from different regions to pledge their share in establishing a culture of unity in diversity that is weaved by no less than our local languages.

The last part of the program is the awarding of banners

to the deserving winners of each contest. And it was end-

ed with a closing remarks given by the Principal, Mad- ame Gemma B. Loyloy.

The sponsor and organizer of the said institutional event ar toe officers and members of TLE-Language Club.

Maaka-overwhelm kasi sa loob ng maraming buwan, Sa wakas! Were now official members of the Knights of the Altar.Jan Anthony Baylon, one of the newly installed Knights said in an ambush interview.

(It is so overwhelming that after many months, Finally! We are now offi- cial members of the Knights of the Altar. )

Being one of the member of the Knights of the Altar is a privilege. For we are called to serve the mystical Body of Christ in the Eucharistic Cele- bration. Most of the newly-installed KoA are Notre Dameans. Baylon added.

The newly-installed KoA will start their service on January 13, the last mass of Rev. Fr. Ezalde Panaguiton, DCC in the parish.

VATICAN CITY, Rome—Pope Francis receives students and teachers of a Rome high school in the Vatican, encouraging them to cultivate passion and curiosi- ty and warning them against dependency on their mobile phones.

Phones are for connectingPope Francis told an enthusiastic Paul VI Hall full of students: life is for communicating!The girls and boys, accompanied by fam- ily members and teachers of Romes Visconti High School clapped loudly when the Pope turned his attention to their ever-present digital devices.

"Free yourself from the addiction to mobile phones" he warned, pointing out that they are good and useful tools, but must be used in the right way. Speaking off-the-cuff during his wide-ranging and to-the-point discourse, the Pope said Mobile phones are for communicationand communication is beautiful and good. But, he continued, the danger of becoming addicted to mobile phones is very tangible at present.

Every one, he continued, should know how to use one, but when you become a slave to your mobile phone, you will lose your freedom”.

IS BANGSAMORO YOUTH THE

BANGSAMOROS FUTURE?

Keith Orillo Ulangkaya

Once, in a room so dark and full of tribulation and dillema, there came a candle, it is at

the hand of power. The candle was lightened and

But this is not yet the end. The other part of the room has no light. This part was full of sorrow, tears, and demise. And alas! The door opened! A bulb was installed and it gave

light.

This story shows the history of Bangsamoro, it has a dark past. But the government gave this place an autonomy and named it Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. It is not yet good. Other parts of this land are full of grief. The government gave again a way. The doors for possibilities were opened and the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in

was We, people of the Bangsamoro become more attentive than before. Others are finding way to solve certain problem and others are finding answers. With this we are more curi-

ous

Now let's talk about the future. What would you think about Bangsamoro's future? Will the Bangsamoro's future be as better as today or worser than today? That is the question. As what Dr. Jose Rizal said, "The youth are the nations hope." Indeed, they are. They hold the beacon of the nation. They are responsible for what will happen on the next gen-

eration. As well as to the Bangsamoro, the youth are also its light-bearer, the future hold- er, and the lands defender. They are the chosen ones wholl hold the next generation.

The Bangsamoro needs the youth. The youth are highly-educated, knows moral order, skillful and artistic. They have critical minds, they have wide perspectives, and big dreams.

They

But today, the hope of the Bangsamoro is slowly losing. Some of them were misguid-

ed, walks in wrong paths, and abused. Some of them have no care to politics, economy and the issues around its nation. Yes, the youth has the ability to solve problems but they

As we can observe, there are so many games that catch the attentions of the majority of the youth. They became more focus on mobile games than watching news on televi-

sion. They are more focus on Korean films than focusing on our own situation. They be-

that P-pop.

What would be future of Bangsamoro? Will the light become darkness again? The light which was placed for us is slowly dimming. We should find a way! A helpful way! While the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) was still in process, the senators did not for- get the role of the youth. They gave the youth a role in building of just a land. They were given protection and focus. If all the youth in Bangsamoro will work hand-on-hand they can build a peaceful land, a more beautiful land, and a land which is better than today .

We deserve to be trusted and to be accepted in what we are and who we are .

The rule of law and justice are parts of our daily life. We must realize the value of it to conquer our fears. There was once a philosopher who believe in the value of no fear. He believe that fear can make every people down. In this time, youth must not be feared to the results of their action but they must face the product of it for them to learn and to make today better.

So, as the time pass by, we must take actions to take good care of them. And teach them to accept their own responsibility. The elderly must be the one who will train them to face the reality of life. They must understand that life isn't all about cupcakes and rainbows but it is all about war between right and wrong. Even though they are still a youth for today, they will be the future of tomorrow.

JAN ANTHONY BAYLON

As a student, we must've felt that feeling of attraction to some- one. And that is completely normal. We, in our age, have our so- called "crushes" that we use as our daily drive and inspiration to go to school everyday and make us study hard to make them feel im- pressed on us. But aside from these "crushes" that we have, some go deeper and further into the story. They fall in love. Take note that love is different from just a crush. Crush is just the beginning, while love on the other hand, is a much more deeper, more complex and complicated process that cannot be explicated easily and much more harder to be defined on its own. Love is said to be the most powerful thing of all. Love can make us go crazy, make us obsessed, and can give us a great amount of happiness, and at the same time, pain. But since love is a crucial thing, undefinable by ordinary means, we are yet to know its meaning. High school relationships is a bit crucial and sensitive topic to discuss, especially if someone doesn't have the wideness of understanding required in order to fully comprehend the subject matter. But nevertheless, as all topics we have discussed, eve- rything has its positives and negatives. When it comes to high school relationships, what are these positives and negatives? How does it affect us high school students? "Study first before you enter the king- dom of love", a quite common and catchy quote nowadays. It's so easy to follow this very simple rule at first, when infatuations and love doesn't strike you yet. But once it enters your domain, your heart, it will be a test of will and resistance. Will, for you need to fight the will of your heart and your own will because love is way too powerful. And resistance, for you need to resist the urges and de- sires of your heart. Of course, I'm not saying that heart is our enemy here. It's not like that. But then again, this love will push us to fall, not literally fall, but to fall for someone. We fall not because we are weak, but because the love that we have is way too powrful to con- tain up to the point where we can't take it anymore and we can no longer resist to its will. With that being said, this pushes us to be dif- ferent than usual. Love takes us to a degree far higher than what a simple crush can take us. And this is where student relationships come in. We enter in a relationship because we love the person whom we are in relation to. Of course, some just know all of this stuff and is yet to experience an authentic relationship because, you know, not everyone can accept everyone. Relationship is also a matter of ac- ceptance. But since we are too young for this, it would be more likely of an obsession or infatuation at this stage. And obsession, infatua- tion, and love are different from each other. Obsessions and infatua- tion can lead to love, but oftentimes fade, but love is pure and doesn't fade. And since we are too young, the former is more common than the latter. Relationships on this stage are far too immature. They be- lieve it's love, but it's not really the genuine love. Some of the rela- tionships are from the Grade 9 and 7, Grade 10 and 7, and, yeah, be- lieve it or not, this relationship thingy has been travelling lower and lower through the age.

Younger students tend to be more immature than the ones in the higher years, but they are far too young to handle the stress and the responsibilities accompanied by the relationship. But still, others pursue. I'm not blaming them for falling in love. But, in their cur- rent state, they really should just focus on their studies. But of course, these relationships are inevitable because, who can really stop the surge of feelings right? Once we fall, we fall and that's that. But relationships are another thing. Most schools nowadays have strict rules regarding these relationships, either they are controlled or are forbidden altogether. But still, others bypass these rules be- cause, you know, it's love. Love is powerful. The positive side of this matter would probably reflect on the performance of the student. He/She will feel inspired and will give effort to his/her studies, as well as to limit himself/herself to do the things he/she previously does. He/She gains discipline in himself/herself, and he/she would most likely be in a happy and positive mood always. The negative side would provably reflect on tge performance of the student, as well as his/her attitude. Performance-wise, the student may get too attached to tge relationship that he/she thinks that it is a must to make it as a priority over studies, which results from failing grades. And if the partner has some bad habits, the other partner would most likely adapt this particular habit in order to please his/her partner. Not unless the habits are good, this is one of the worst events that can take place in an immature relationship. Relation- ships are a very crucial and important matter. It must not be taken lightly. It is not a joke, either. Love, respect, and maturity must be present in order for the relationship to last. Relationships are not en- couraged these times, for they often lead to negative effects. But still, it is the student's decision whether he/she allow himself/herself to fall, or he/she will resist the feeling and avoid a rather risky fall.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor,

`

I want to ask something about our school rule. Every lunch time, we are not allowed to go home. Instead, we are asked to bring our baon so that we can have our lunch inside the campus only.

The question is, why are we not allowed to go home during lunch break? Some of the students may feel like they want to defecate. We want also to take some rest after the 4 morning classes.

A pleasant and blissful day to you!

I am hoping for your response.

Thank you very much for reading this. May this problem be acknowledged

and solved. More power to your publi-

cation! God bless!

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Anonymous,

` Praise be Jesus and Mary!

Regarding on your problem. Yes, there are many students who wrote letters about this matter.

My answer is this: For security reasons, we are asked to stay inside the campus. The school will be the one who is re- sponsible if ever well encounter bad happenings outside the campus during lunch break (God forbid). Second, students

now are very naughty. Because of being idle, some may

choose not to go back in the campus.

In the problem of personal necessity, the school have enough supply of water in every cubicle of the newly- constructed comfort rooms. You can defecate there. Regard- ing also on your rest problems,you can take a nap during lunch break or have some quiet, peaceful time under the tree. We have plenty of trees inside the campus.

There is a way on how we can solve problems. If we want to, we can, if well find a way.

Thank you for sending your letter to us. God bless to you also.

JAN ANTHONY BAYLON

News has it that the Filipino subject in college is to be removed. Social media sites such as facebook, twitter, etc. has

spread the news like a lightning bolt that pierced the skies. But what will happen if the Filipino subject is removed? How will

it affect us? The Filipino subject is our country's native subject. And naturally, when the news came out that the subject be eradicated, it once again brought arguments and great controversy amongst the people, us, in fact. In social media, the even created some so-called memes to express how they feel about this particular matter. Filipino is a very crucial subject for us because we are Filipinos. We are so willing to learn other languages and things from other countries without realizing that we have slowly abandoned the subject and culture that have molded us as who we are now, for the sake of the comfort and luxury that we can attain from using something that isn't naively ours. Our subject is our subject. The Filipino subject alone helps us define and differentiate us amongst other human races of this world. Our nature sets us apart from others. Others may say, "It's just a subject, what about it?", but we must remove this mindset from us.

We are born as Filipinos and the Filipino subject is our life bond. How can we define ourselves as Filipinos if we are not educated to the subject of Filipino? Of course, we can always say that Filipino is the language that we speak. But are we just speaking it? Our Filipino subject has passed many challenges before. And they want it removed? What will be the rssence of our Filipino citizenship if the guide and support we have will be removed, which is the subject? So we must defend what is ours. Yes, this might be a problem for those who are studying college only. But all of us has to go through college in order to be professional and successful, right? The learnings that are being taught in the Filipino subject in college is no different than what is being taughy to us since we are in the elementary days. They just keep on addong tweaks to further enhance the subject. But nevertheless, it is still the same subject that we loved and that of which defined our nature as Filipinos, so why remove it in the first place, right? We must live what is ours and not resort to things that only provide us temporary satisfaction. As what Dr. Jose Rizal stated in one of his quotes, "Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit pa sa mabaho at malansang isda", tjis means that we must love the Filipino subject with our hearts and minds. English might be the universal medium, but Filipino is our life!

MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte has expressed anger over

the blunders related to logistics and food of some of the athletes partici-

pating in the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, which have placed the

country in a bad light in the home countries of the visiting teams and

guests.

Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said Duterte, in South Korea

for a summit, was angryupon learning of the misstepsof the organ-

izing committee in Manila after he was apparently briefed about issues

hounding the arrival of teams prior to the formal opening this Saturday

at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan and New Clark City in Tarlac.

Malacañang earlier suggested that the government should handle the SEA Games but apparently PHISGOC managed to retain supervision and control over the handling of the regional sports meet.

Senators are eyeing an investigation into the reported lapses in the coun- trys hosting of the event but the inquiry will likely be held after the games.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte earlier questioned why organizers chose a song named after the Philippine capital, when there are athletes who hailed from other parts of the country.

"Its a spectacle but if I can put their identities out there for just 2 minutes each, its an homage to the resilience of these people. If you can shine a spotlight on that and make them feel included in the national agenda I think weve done more than just entertain."

Floy Quintos, a Palanca-award winning playwright, said they just "needed a song everyone could sing."

Quintos said the show united the Filipino people "if only for a moment."

Quintos said the show united the Filipino people "if only for a moment."

"Theres nothing political or exclusionist about it. The program from the very beginning strove for nothing but inclusion," he told ANC's Early Edition.

"The objective was for the whole arena to be singing as the Filipino team entered."

"That was the aim of the spectacle. The aim of any national event that brings us together is valid at this point. Given the way the SEA Games has gotten off to a rocky start, that was the greatest pressure for us. Kung pumalpak tayo dito, that's it," he said.

Quintos said he wanted the show to be "inclusive of as many Filipino people as possible" which was why the opening number had featured

"A lot of people are saying we saved it. But of course right now, I don't really like to think about that. Its team effort, it was for the nation."

PHISGOC: SEA Games cauldron lighting ‘real’, up to production to discuss details

MANILA—Organizers of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games said on Sunday the lighting of the cauldron at New Clark City was "real", even as they sidestepped claims that it was not live but pre-recorded.

DAVAO CITY – A magnitude 6.4 quake of tectonic origin struck the southern part of Min- danao at 10:02 a.m, but for no damages were reported.

Jarie Osias, spokesman of the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee, said his group leaves it up to the produ ction company to answer questions about program details.

At least 20 aftershocks ranging from magnitude 2.3 to 3.6 have been recorded by the Phil- ippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) as of 12:35 noon.

"They would be in the best position to explain the production and technical consideration whether or not there was a taping h appened at the cauldron," Osias said in an interview on ANC.

"Assuming it was taped, there was no express prohibition in the ASEAN federation as to the timing of the lighting."

In its Earthquake Information Number 2, Phivolcs said the quakes epicenter was 130 kms southeast of Jose Abad Santos in Davao Occidental with a depth of 60 kilometers. After-

In a video shown during the opening ceremonies at Philippine Arena Saturday night, world champion fighter Manny Pacquiao and ama- teur-boxing world champion Nesthy Petecio could be seen lighting the cauldron at NCC in Capas town, Tarlac.

More than 30,000 spectators were present at the 55,000-seater Philippine Arena, Osias said. Of this figure, some 3,000 were athletes, he added.

This is the fourth time the country has hosted the regional competition, and first since 2005.

I WANT TO BE A MORTAL
Love is said to be the most powerful material in the world. The story below
tells us the true magic of affection and love.
done. They asked each other’s name and became friends.
As Zeus was walking at Olympian court, Aphrodite, his daughter walks toward him and said,
“Father, are mortals bad?” Zeus was surprised and said “No, my daughter. They are all good.
They worship us day and night. They obey us, imitate us. Why do you ask such things?” Then
little Aphrodite asked again, “But why do we prohibit mortals entering our Kingdom?” Zeus
laughed and said. “My daughter, in order that we immortals will remain as immortals, no hu-
man shall enter our gates.” Aphrodite rubbed her eyes. “I don’t understand, father” And Zeus
said “You will understand soon, go to sleep now my princess.”
Day after day, Zephyrus and Aphrodite meet and laughed with each other. They real-
ized that they are also slowly falling in love. Zephyrus asked Aphrodite if she could be his wife.
Aphrodite answered yes. They become secret lovers.
One day, Zeus found out that Aphrodite has a secret affair with a mortal. He got angry
and prohibited Aphrodite entering the mortal world.
Then Ethymus announced to the mortals that Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beau-
ty. Zephyrus heard all of these. He planned something risky, but in the name of love, he is willing
to die.
Hera, Zeus’ sister and wife entered the court. “I heard your conversation with Aphrodite. I
think it’s time for me to move.” “No, Hera, it is not yet time. Let Aphrodite understand every-
thing. How’s Levitra?” “She was killed by Lances at the Titan war! That’s why I hate mortals!”
And years passed by, Aphrodite grew up and became goddess of beauty and love. That’s
why she’s permitted to go at the world of mortals. Every day she walks at the city and finds lov-
ers. She buys food and eats them. She was happy at the world of mortals. No one knows her be-
cause she does not recognize yet by mortals as goddess of love and beauty. Ethymus, Zeus mes-
senger did not inform the people yet about her true identity. Aphrodite went to Zeus’ temple to
know if her father was truly worshipped by mortals. On the other hand Zephyrus, the most
handsome and strongest was at the city was also walking at the streets. He entered at Zeus’ tem-
ple. He saw a woman there sitting and looking at the statue then he asked the woman “Lady, why
are you staring at the statue?” the lady looked at him and asked, “Is that Zeus?” Zephyrus
laughed so hard. The lady frowned and said “Why did you laugh?” Zephyrus stopped laughing.
He realized that he was talking with a beautiful lady, “Sorry. Yes it’s Zeus.” Then the lady said
That is not Zeus. He is not thin and harry” Zephyrus laughed again. The lady be-
came pissed off and went away.
“Father, I want to be a mortal,” Aphrodite said to Zeus. Hera was horrified. But Zeus,
who is a loving father hugged Aphrodite and said “My daughter be safe. I know that love is so
powerful. Even though I will prohibit you, you will not obey for heart is worthy to be obeyed.
You can enter here anytime you want.” Hera was shocked, she exclaimed, “What?! It should not
be happening! Remember Aphrodite, your lover will be in vain!” Hera walked away very angry.
Then Aphrodite wept “Father, thank you because you understand me. I will miss you. ”
And as Zeus hugged Aphrodite, he get her power and kept it in the bottle. “Go now my daugh-
ter, find your true love and live happily ever after.” Aphrodite ran towards Zephyrus and they
were married and bore a child. They named her Zephyridite. Aphrodite was now 42 years old.
She do not regret on her age for she want to die not in war but in love.
Then Zephyrus led the kingdom’s army. He will fight the Persians. Aphrodite asked for
Zeus’ blessing. “Father, help my husband.” Aphrodite waited for Zephyrus to return but unfor-
tunately, she knew that her husband died in the battlefield. She wept and cried bitterly.
“Zephyridite bore a child and they named them Zephyr and Aphrod. And that’s you”
“Grandma, is it true that your husband died in a battlefield?”
“Yes my dear”
As Zeus was sitting at his throne, he saw Aphrodite frowning “Father, I know why do you
prohibit mortal entering the Olympian Mountain. They are so disrespectful!” Zeus asked her
“Why my daughter?” Then Aphrodite answered “A man asked me why I am staring at the stat-
ue inside your temple. Then I asked him if it is you who is worshipped in the temple. But you are
not the one who is standing there. It is thin and hairy. He laughed at me boisterously!” Zeus
laughed. Aphrodite frowned again. Then Zeus said “My daughter we are hiding our true charac-
teristics’. If I, Zeus will enter the world of mortals to survey, they will not know me.”
“How about you grandma, you are now seventy-eight. Do you have any communication with
your father Zeus?”
“No for I stand on my own and continue obeying what my heart dictates”
Suddenly, a man knocked at the door. It was Ethymus! “Goddess of love, you are called to go
home now.”
Aphrodite realized that father’s right. She came back to the mortal world and ask par-
don to Zephyrus. Zephyrus on the other hand asked pardon to Aphrodite for what he had

This mighty heart of mine aches so bitterly

Life is destined to be in misery

How clever are you for you had made me woe

You did not help me in the midst of my foe

Please extenuate my doubts and weakest soul

Let my wicked antagonist crawl

Why O, throned deities scourge me direly and hurt

Thy parchment is hot, my life distort

Dislodge to me my agony, and thy curse

In times of my embroilment, please be my nurse

Invigorate my soul with thy wondrous hands

Dispel my pangs, disentangle my disgust

Thy maneuver, will be wonderful lust

Sedate thy ire, do not make me disparage

And as I die, may you bid me bon voyage!

THE ORACLE OF THE TRUTH

as I die, may you bid me bon voyage! THE ORACLE OF THE TRUTH Thy destiny

Thy destiny will be full of affliction In that, I will release my great assertion Thy future will be full of dark acridness You will blanch in our midst with unawareness

All the people on earth will not know you And if there is, it will only be few Remember that lies will be the cynosure And the blind can only one, see you for sure

People will not espy your seraphic deeds They will all acknowledge the serpentine needs Evil lies will be the despot of human crowd And you will be a slave, nowhere to be found My great prediction is very near to come And if youll add these, only one is sum And prepare O, truth; Ill be the last to warn And prepare O, man, trust no one

There is one eyewitness to Rizals execution whose observation was told to a journalist in 1949, or 53 years after the event. A man named Hilarion Martinez, then 72 years old, relayed to Alberto Mendoza of the Sunday Times Magazine what he witnessed during Rizals execution.

In 1896, a then 20-year old Martinez was a member of the Leales Voluntarios de Manila (Loyal Volunteers of Manila) and was assigned to the drum corps. Martinez and his fel- low drum corps members accompanied the condemned man from the time he left Fort Santiago until he reached Bagumbayan. Because of his role in the drum corps, it is said that he occupied a good vantage point from which to observe the execution. Martinezcomplete account is reproduced below:

"It was six oclock in the morning of December 30, 1896, when we woke up at our quarters at the corner of Sta. Potenciana and Magal- lanes Streets, in Intramuros, to attend the execution of Jose Rizal, about which we had been briefed the day before. We were in the Leales Voluntarios de Manila, a semi-military organization under the command of Capt. Manuel Leaño. Our immediate officer was a youthful Spanish lieutenant named Juan Pereira. I was twenty years old then, and a member of the drum corps.

"We marched out of Intramuros through the Puerta Real, or where Nozaleda (now General Luna) Street out through the walls on the south, clad in our cañamo uniforms and with our cajas vivas strapped around our waists. We proceeded to what is now Padre Burgos Street, under an overcast sky and a biting December morn.

"Bagumbayan is not the Luneta now. The waters of Manila Bay still reached the other side of Malecon Drive (now Bonifacio Drive) where the new Luneta is located. The Luneta of those days was as far back as the site of the old Bagumbayan police station, near which lush bamboo thickets grew.

"As we rounded the corner of P. Burgos and General Luna Streets, we got a glimpse of the cuadro, a square formation of about ten companies of Filipino and Spanish soldiers. The former occupied the

inner portion of the quadrangle, while the latter were at the rear. This formation was strategic because the Filipino soldiersposition within the cuadro sig-

nified that the Spanish authorities wanted Rizal to die in the hands of the Filipino sol- diers. If the latter disobeyed the command to fire upon Rizal, the Spanish soldiers posi- tioned at the rear would fire upon them.

"There were civilian spectators, too. The side of the cuadro near the bay was open.

"As we approached the quadrangle, we saw some Spanish military officers earnestly talk- ing in low voices. Rizal was nowhere to be seen – yet. Not having had a glimpse of the man before, I began to wonder what he looked like. I remembered how my mother told me Rizal was so learned, nobody could poison him as he always carried with him his own

spoon and fork with which he could detect whether his food was poisoned or not. I heard too, of his fighting for our (Filipino) cause aside from legends that were beginning to be woven around him.

"Soon the small crowd heard the muffle sound of our approaching vivas draped with black cloth during execution ceremonies. A slight commotion broke out at the right end of the cuadro near the bay as some soldiers with fixed bayonets entered followed by a man in black, his arms tied at the elbows from the back, on his head, a derby hat or chistera, on his sides, a Spanish officer and a Jesuit priest.

"When I saw the man, I knew he was Rizal.

Our commanding officer approached us and told us should Rizal attempt to speak aloud, we should beat our drums hard to drown out his voice. I looked at Rizal. He was of regu- lar build, unshaven, quite pale, perhaps as a result of his confinement but he was visibly composed and serene. A Jesuit approached him, said a prayer and blessed him. Then a colonel approached him too, as our commanding officer ordered us to move two paces backwards, and the firing squad of six Filipinos came forward and took our former posi- tion behind Rizal. With visible effort, Rizal raised his right hand which was tied and took off his chistera or derby hat. My heart beat fast, as in all other executions I had wit- nessed before, I felt tense and nervous. Amidst the silence, Rizal moved his head very slowly up and down, his lips moving as if in prayer.

"Then the commanding officer by means of his saber, signaled the firing squad to aim. Then the saber dropped and there was a simultaneous crack of rifle fire that shattered the stillness of the morning. Jose Rizal wheeled in one last effort and toppled forward with a thud, his face towards the sky and his derby hat thrown ahead. He had fallen in the direction of the bay.

"Many of the reos [condemned criminals] had been caused to kneel and be hoodwinked before they were shot on the head. But Rizal was spared that humiliation.

"Suddenly, as if from nowhere, a small dog appeared and ran in circles around Rizals fallen body, barking and whimpering. This incident would much later be the subject of our talk in our quarters. Some of my com- rades were quick to conclude that it was a premonition of a coming misfor- tune.

"Then the capitan militar de la sanidad (medical officer) stepped forward, knelt before the fallen man, and felt his pulse. Looking up, he beckoned to a member of the firing squad to come forward and give the final tiro de gracia, another shot done at close range. I thought I saw a faint haze rise from Rizals coat, but it might be a wisp of the morning mist. Seeing the body before me, I felt weak.

"The officers began to show animation again. They fell in formation and marched to the tune of the Spanish national air, the Paso Doble Marcha de Cadiz.

"As was customary in past executions, we filed past the body to view it for the last time. When we were commanded 'eyes left,' I did not shut my eyes as I did at the sight of the several reos whose heads were blown off by rifle fire. I wanted to see the face of the man for one last time. Rizal lay dead on the dewy grass. The day had started and I real- ized that I was gazing on the face of the great Malayan; that I was witnessing history in the making."

"A group of Spanish officers who were standing nearby opened into a semicircular for- mation or media luna. Then a Spaniard (we would learn later he was Lt. Luis Andrade, one of Rizals popular Spanish defenders and sympathizers) affectionately shook the latters hand. When Rizal was near the center of the quadrangle, the mayor de la plaza, a colonel, announced at the bandillo: En el nombre del Rey, el que se levante la voz a fa- vor del reo sera ejecutado.(In the name of the King, he who raises his voice in favor of the criminal will be executed.)

"A deep silence enshrouded the whole assembly.

"We in the drum corps were about seven paces behind Rizal who then faced the bay.

YEAR LII VOLUME 12 NO 1 SY 2019-2020
All significant smartphone launches have now passed and as we
approach the end of the year, the ten best shake out after more ex-
tended usage of each. All ten phones are excellent and certain as-
pects make each a possible contender for the top spot.
1. SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 9
The Galaxy Note 9 is the best phone for business and continues to be
my favorite phone of 2018. I've been using one now for several
months and despite trying out some great
new
phones
like
the
iPhone
XS
Max and Google Pixel 3 XL, none of these
can replace the Note 9 and everything
Samsung includes in this stunning device.
This is especially true for use in the enter-
prise space.The Galaxy Note 9 improves
upon the Note 8 with a Bluetooth S Pen,
more internal capacity and RAM, a mas-
sive 4,000 mAh battery, better dual rear
cameras with some software intelligence,
enhanced audio capability, and new place-
ment of the rear fingerprint scanner.The new Bluetooth S Pen is an ex-
cellent innovation that is sure to please all Note fans with the additional
remote control functionality. Later this year a SDK will be released so
that third parties can add support for the Bluetooth S Pen.The Samsung
Galaxy Note 9 continues to have all of the excellent Galaxy Foundation
aspects such as a high level of water resistance, fast wireless charging,
MANILA, Philippines — The National Telecommu-
nications Commission officially confirmed Minda-
nao Islamic Telephone Company (Mislatel) as the
new third telecommunications player on Monday.
a
stunning Super AMOLED screen, expandable microSD storage, a
3.5mm headset jack, and much more. In addition, extending it to an ex-
ternal monitor with Samsung DeX is quick and easy, while also provid-
ing a full functioning desktop experience. Samsung just released
a
Linux on DeX betathis week that continues to show how capable the
Galaxy Note 9 is for business.Since it has been out now for a few
months, you can find great deals on the Note 9. T-Mobile sells it for
$900 ($100 less than launch price) while a SIM-unlocked one from
Samsung will only be $800 during its Black Friday sale. With a large ca-
pacity microSD card you could actually have more than 1TB in the palm
of
your hand.
2.
HUAWEI
MATE
20
PRO
Huawei recently announced the Mate 20
Pro and it brings together all of the great-
"For having passed the Preliminary and Detailed
ness of Huawei into a single device that is
tough to beat. The Mate 20 Pro includes the
first Android 7nm process chipset with the
Kirin 980 (Apple's A12 Bionic also uses the
7nm process), two Neural Processing Units,
a
fourth-generation image signal processor,
and a LTE Cat.21 modem. The triple rear
camera capability from the Huawei P20 Pro is brought to the Mate 20
Pro, but in a different central two-by-two arrangement with one change
made to one of the three lenses. The three rear cameras have 40MP,
20MP, and 8MP resolution with a 24MP front-facing shooter and artifi-
cial intelligence to help you capture great shots. The monochrome lens
has been replaced with a wide-angle lens so that you now have tele-
photo, wide-angle, and standard camera functionality. A large 6.39 inch
OLED is on the front with cool Midnight Blue, Emerald Green, Black,
Pink Gold, and Twilight color options for the device. Android 9.0
Pie powers things while EMUI has been updated to version 9.0.One in-
teresting move from Huawei is the inclusion of an external storage card
slot using its own new nano memory card rather than standard microSD
cards. We also see one of the first fingerprint scanners embedded right
into the display. Huawei is known for very long battery life and massive
batteries so the 4,200 mAh battery is no real surprise, but much appre-
ciated.
Evaluation phases, the NMP-SC (New Major Player
Selection Committee) has determined that the first
submission package of Mindanao Islamic Telephone
Company, Inc. with Udenna Corporation, Chelsea
Logistics Holdings Corp. and China Telecommunica-
tions Corporation (MISLATEL Group) was complete
and compliant," the confirmation order read.
Newly Discovered "Super-Earth"
The consortium was granted provisional authority on
November 9, after competitors Sear Telecom and
PT&T were disqualified. But Mislatel's winning bid
has not been without controversy.
May Harbor Alien Life
Critics have claimed Uy's friendship with Duterte
had influenced the bidding. Uy had also donated at

China Telecom is the ninth largest telecommunica-
tions company in the world, according to the 2017
Forbes Global 2000 list. It's also the third biggest
mobile service provider in China.
While the Galaxy Note 9 offers just about everything you want, software
updates are not its specialty. If you want an Android phone that will al-
ways have the latest firmware and security updates, while also offering
a
fairly stock experience, then nothing beats the new Google Pixel 3
Although likely cold (-170 degrees celsius), it could still have the potential to harbour
primitive life if it has a large, hot iron or nickel core and enhanced geothermal activi-

and 3 XL. These two phones are the exact same except for the overall
size and battery capacity. The Google Pixel 3 XL has a large 6.3-inch
18:9 display, Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB and
128GB integrated storage, single rear 12.2 megapixel camera, dual
front-facing cameras, IP68 dust and
water resistance, a 3430 mAh battery,
and dual front stereo speakers. The
smaller Pixel 3 has a 5.5 inch display
and smaller 2,915 mAh battery while
the rest of the specs are the same as
the XL model. Thankfully, wireless
charging is included this year, along
with a set of wired Pixel Buds in the
retail package. The larger Pixel 3 XL
has a display with a notch while the
smaller model forgoes this design ap-
proach so often seen today. They both help you shoot stunning photos
so if photography means more to you than other functions and features
you may want to consider the Pixel 3 or 3 XL over other smartphones in
this list. You can check out my weekend with the Pixel 3 XL where I
"Geothermal heating could support 'life zones' under its surface, akin to subsurface
lakes found in Antarctica," said Edward Guinan, Astrophysicist at the varsity.
Philippine lawmakers have also raised security con-
cerns over allowing China — a country claiming al-
most the entirety of the South China Sea — includ-
ing areas Manila claims and calls the West Philippine
Sea, to enter the local market.
"We note that the surface temperature on Jupiter's icy moon Europa is similar to Bar-
nard b but because of tidal heating, Europa probably has liquid oceans under its icy
surface," Mr Guinan added.
The results were announced at the 233rd meeting of the American Astronomy Socie-
ty (AAS) in Seattle.
On November 14, House Minority Leader Danilo
Suarez (Quezon) threatened to stop China Telecom
from entering the market, citing national security and
privacy concerns.
Although very faint, it may be possible for Barnard b to be imaged by future very
large telescopes, according to Mr Guinan.
Suarez said during a press conference, “I will go to
court and invoke national security to stop China Tel-
ecom from participating in the telecoms industry."
"Such observations will shed light on the nature of the planet's atmosphere, surface,
and potential habitability," he said.
The most significant aspect of the discovery of Barnard's star b is that the two near-
est star systems to the Sun are now known to host planets.
"This supports previous studies based on Kepler Mission data, inferring that planets
can be very common throughout the galaxy, even numbering in the tens of billions,"
said co-author Scott Engle from the varsity.
According to TV5 and ONE News, the order signals
the start of the 90-day post-qualification before the
issuance and frequencies and necessary permit. —

The creation of everything was done by God, but the things in it is done by man- kind.

The creation of Philippine Space Agency was proposed by the PAGASA of the Phil- ippines so that the Philippines will have its own space agency to monitor the space above. The space is composed of asteroids, comets, meteoroids and other celestial bodies that could possibly enter the earth without its permission. The PAGASA created

it so that the Philippines will be aware if there will be a celestial bodies entering or

landing into our country.

They said that it could help the internet connection of the Philippines to get faster. They proposed that soon there will be an internet connection named with 5G name because of that said agency. By the help of that agency, the Philippines will surely de- veloped a lot of gadgets. And additional, the Philippines will be safer than before be- cause it could monitor the space.

In the world almost all of the countries has its own satellites including the Philip- pines, but they advantage of others is that, they have an agency that could monitor the space. Because of this situation, the Philippines together with the PAGASA conducted and created the agency in the Philippines like the other countries because they know that if this ongoing process of the agency, the Philippines will be more updated in tech-

nology. For example, if this proposal will succeed, the Philippine authorities will have a

connection to the satellite above and by the help of that the Filipinos will be able to

create robots because of it. The Philippines will surely belong to the countries that is updated in technology.

According to the authorities, this proposal is still ongoing but soon will succeed.

curable. In stage 2, it is also showing symptoms but you are getting weaker every- day. And in stage 3, you have a little chance to be cured in this stage but in stage 4, youre life is in danger.

In order to survive cancer, you must perform treatments in the hospitals to kill those cancer cells in your body. You must be generally check-up each day to monitor your body and to know what are the medicines you should maintain. The treatment in cancer is called chemotherapy. In this chemotherapy, you may able to survive, unless your stage is in the dangerous state. Chemotherapy must be perform regularly and it should be maintained. You may have a 55% of survival if your body is fighting to the said disease, but if the fighter want to face and accept his or her destiny, the word destiny will occur if he or she will live.

According to the experts, in one year, there are almost 100,000 issues about cancer. In that 100,000 people, there are only 10% of them survives. To prevent cancer, we must take care of ourselves until the end because we only live once.
